Mechanical Engineering ProgramBack
Mechanical engineers play a major role in the transportation and automotive fields, in energy utilization and conservation, in the fields of automation, in manufacturing and biomechanical systems, fluid machinery, production and processing machinery. Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines, offering students a wide range of career choices.
Mechanical engineers are responsible for design, development, testing, control, and manufacture and research in these diverse fields. Many mechanical engineering graduates assume positions of management, while others prefer a career along technical lines.
An academic program has been planned to offer a challenging, yet basic education to cater to various needs. It is designed to provide a knowledge of the basic physical sciences in the first year and an engineering science program in the second year.The basics of the mechanical engineering discipline are introduced in the third year. Electives in the fourth year give students the flexibility to concentrate on areas of specialization. The study program culminates in a capstone design project which offers the opportunity to solve real-world problems in a multi-disciplinary setting. In addition to 138 credit hours of formal course work, two industrial training sessions with a total duration of 40 days are required to satisfy the BS requirement.
